Russell Brand Not Wearing His Wedding Ring Either
Russell Brand and his wife Katy Perry spent Christmas apart. She was in Hawaii, and he was in London. The distance proved to be more than enough fuel for rumors of a problem in the marriage. Initially, many observers wrote off the speculation as unfounded, but over the past few days, enough ammunition has been uncovered to make the hype seem believable.
First, US Weekly quoted an insider as saying the time apart was the byproduct of a massive fight between the two over his respect for her parents. Then, Perry was photographed on the beach without her wedding ring. As some women swim and exercise without their jewelry on, this wasn’t necessarily a concern, but now Brand has been photographed without his ring on too. As he wasn’t swimming at the time, this is a huge red flag.
According to The Daily Mail, the comedian spent today shopping in London and socializing with fans. He even took a break to take a picture with a young woman, in which he seemed perfectly at ease despite the fact that he was sans wedding ring.
His behavior this morning was quite the contrast from Kobe Bryant’s over the past few days as he’s been dealing with his own marital problems. The Lakers forward has looked positively devastated every time he’s been seen off the court, which strikes me as the way someone should probably react when his marriage is dangling by the thread. Maybe that’s evidence there’s really no problems within Brand’s marriage, or maybe his seemingly flippant behavior is evidence of just how many problems there are. Either way, Pop Blend wishes he and his wife nothing but the best whether it be together or ultimately apart.
